I love that John the Baptist was constantly pointing out Jesus to people. When they asked him who he was – he told them about the one coming after him. Anytime Jesus came into view – John directed everyone’s attention to him.
That is ministry – always pointing people to Jesus.
It doesn’t matter how many people are in your church, in your Bible study, or follow you on social media. It doesn’t matter if you’re surrounded by senior executives or children.
What matters is – are the things you say and do pointing people to Jesus?
If my “ministry” draws people to me? Brings me praise? Elevates me in any way? Then, I have failed.
Also, because God is cool like that, today’s Proverb holds a similar thought. “In all your ways, acknowledge him…”
And, even better than that, that same verse mentions “the path.” When we acknowledge God in “all our ways,” he makes our paths straight. That means we keep moving forward, with purpose, towards our destination.
You are loved. 💕
